Description

We all remember what it was like to be a child in a crowded art museum. It was hard to see, let alone appreciate the art. It got tiring. And there was so much else to look at! That's the lesson of this ingeniously simple yet profound book about art. It is everywhere-from another visitor's elaborate tattoos to the way the sun makes patterns of light on the floor. While other visitors are busy trying to find their way through the museum's galleries, or fighting for room to view a masterpiece, our hero examines the gallery upside down from a bench, plays with his shadow, and makes friends with the custodian. With a wink and a nod to serious museum-goers everywhere, Joanne Liu's whimsical illustrations remind us that sometimes the best kind of art is the kind you make yourself.

Review quote

"More artwork than book, this text-free narrative follows a young museum-goer as he wanders the hallowed halls of great museums. The small boy in Liu's dazzling illustrations ogles fellow museum-goers, plays with his shadow, and hides under a bench, all the while surrounded by the works of Henri Matisse, Alexander Calder, Johannes Vermeer, Piet Mondrian, and more, spotlighting the museum as a wondrous place for curious children." -Artsy "Little readers can relate to the story from a child's perspective, and discover the work of artists such as Henri Matisse, Alexander Calder, Johannes Vermeer, and Piet Mondrian whose pieces are subtly illustrated throughout the picture book." -My Modern Met
